DESCRIPTION
Functional wood is needed in this channel segment to increase channel complexity and help aggrade the bed to reconnect floodplain areas that have been disconnected by channel incision. Failure of the previously installed log weirs highlights the need to support natural floodplain processes such as channel migration and the importance of treating the entire stream corridor rather than fixing the stream within its artificially confined (induced by incision) channel. Removal of the fill materials along the abandoned road alignment will restore connectivity to potential off channel habitat.
